Tragic Discovery: Reality TV Star Brooke Gomez Found Decomposing in Manhattan ResidenceNovember 22, 2023
Reality TV star and star interior designer Brooke Gomez was discovered dead in her Upper East Side apartment. Cops revealed that her body was in an advanced state of decomposition. Investigators believe that Gomez, 49, had been dead for several days before a friend showed up at her Madison Ave. building and asked the superintendent to check on her. The concerned friend had not heard from Gomez in at least a week. Police found no wounds on her body and do not consider her death suspicious. The city Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Gomez appeared in the second season of “Bethenny Ever After” to help renovate and remodel Bethenny Frankel’s home. She was the daughter of celebrated decorator Mariette Himes Gomez, who also appeared in the reality show. Gomez’s other A-list clients included Michael J. Fox and Sigourney Weaver. An announcement of her death was posted on her Instagram page, describing her as “a light that shined brilliantly on everyone who knew her.” Her last post on Instagram was on Oct. 23 with a cryptic message.
